Has anyone used these? What are they like?

Relatively bright and long lasting.
I'm curious. GHS pressurewounds are alloy 52 and awesome. I wonder what pure rounds are like.
GHS Progressives are alloy 52 and they are awesome, my favorite nickel plated rounds by far. From my experiences with Labella I bet that they're even better.
Pressurewounds and Progressives use Alloy 52 I believe. Really dig the PW's and am about to use the Progressives. Haven't tried Labella and probably won't. I prefer GHS.
I'd like to hear as well. I have a set but have not tried them yet. Got a 3 pack from Jason at Basstringsonline. I have used the Stainless Steel Rounds (ex Hard Rockin' Steels), and they are awesome. The Nickels as well which I found OK but I Like Sunbeams better for a nickel string. I've been thinking about trying the GHS Pressurewounds.
Bumping this up as I'm curious about these as well and there's not much info about these on TB. I tried Boomer 52's and liked them but they were a bit too stiff feeling. Also the ball ends on GHS strings don't work with my current bass (don't fit into the ferules). I've liked other La Bellas so I'm thinking of trying the Super Alloy 52's. Can anyone compare them to other common nickel or steel strings (d'addario, dr) in terms of tension, brightness, scoop, longevity etc?
I have a set of these in my string box I've never used yet. I need to do that.
Frankly, I'm soooo happy with the new Dunlop Super Bright Nickles, they're gonna have to be super really extremely good to get past those.
That's funny - I just put the Dunlops on this past weekend and am feeling the same way. I like trying new stuff though...
GHS Progressives are not plated. They are the 52 alloy wrap.
I have Labella Super Alloy 52s. They are excellent strings! They feel great, last a long time, are highly magnetic and versatile. I think you'll like them.
Root 5: can you compare these to some other strings you've tried? I'd like to hear what the mids/highs are like compared to other strings.
Sounds like they are a bit thicker and mid forward than the Slinkies, which I've never tried.
